Actual software recording from Strideway. Capture multiple footstrikes.
Tekscan systems provide objective, quantifiable data from heel contact to toe off during the full gait cycle. Unique insights from these systems help you identify asymmetries and abnormalities which otherwise might go undetected.
Pivot Phases in Gait
There are three primary pivots in gait: the heel pivot, the ankle pivot, and the forefoot pivot.
Tekscan's 3-Box approach allows you to segment the foot for a more detailed analysis of these three primary pivots of gait. The Gait Curve shows total vertical ground reaction force from heel strike to toe-off.
The Force vs. Time graphs for the forefoot and heel provide for specific loading patterns during heel contact and forefoot contact, independent of and in conjunction with the Gait Curve.
Tekscan offers two distinctive solutions for performing meaningful gait analyses: Platform-based walkways and in-shoe-based systems.
The Strideway™ is a gait analysis system that uniquely provide spatial-temporal data from multiple sequential footsteps during the gait cycle. Strideway Systems are available in multiple sensor resolutions and lengths from 1-5 meters that are sure to meet your needs.
The F-Scan™, is our advanced in-shoe foot pressure measurement system, uses pressure and timing data to reveal what’s happening inside the shoe during the phases of gait.
The F-Scan64™ is cord-free in-shoe system with micro-sized, Bluetooth™-enabled electronics allowing for quick, natural gait analysis.
Regardless of whether you choose the walkway or in-shoe system, they provide accurate, repeatable data for a broad range of tests and insights including:
Leading clinicians rely on the accurate pressure data from Tekscan for a complete gait analysis and improved patient outcomes. See for yourself the valuable insights into the gait cycle provided by Tekscan systems in the videos below.
